London Residential Home Fire Safety 'Horrifying'...

Fire Safety Order 2005Earlier in the week, I blogged information about fire safety seminars being run by South Yorkshire Fire Service.  Two of these dates are aimed at residential care home owners home (Residential Care Home Owners (09/02/2012 and 10/02/2012).

This morning I cam accross an investigation by the BBC into residential home fire safety in London...

29 of the homes investigated have not reached the appropriate standards since 2010, and he homes were guilty of breaches including:

  • No fire escape plans
  • No training for staff
  • No marked fire exits

Since this investigation there has been a call for a public register care homes so that members of the public can check the the required precautions and standards are in place.
